Cable comes from the power pole, through the scaffolding of the construction next door, aerial down the drive to where it is tied to a UFB conduit at about 2 metres high, then into the downstairs flat. One hopes there are plans to tidy it all up with the apartments next door are finished!

Have done.
Going to be interesting to see over the next few years what the new owners plan to do with this network. :-)

That looks better now! Thanks!
... now if you could get rid of the random coil of coax hanging off the pole next door (up the hill) ...
Seriously @gaddman what is your policy of removing surplus cable that has been left coiled on or dangling from poles?

In the 'credit where it is due' box - cable in the photo has now been totally removed, as has the surplus coil of cable in the next driveway up the street.
Well done @gaddman for getting the right people there. This is a step towards the service @jasonparis is aiming for.
